Trickle Up “Arpita Mandal”

Directed by Mark Littman

Trickle Up is a non-profit that helps vulnerable women across the globe find a path out of extreme poverty.
Individual stories are one of the most compelling ways to connect with the organization, and in this short film, we traveled to West Bengal, India to meet Arpita Mandel. Arpita lost everything she had in a flood, but is now making a living creating and selling incense sticks. Our work with Trickle up has taken us to locations in Burkina Faso, Guatemala, India, and the US to tell the inspiring stories of program participants. It has led to increased awareness of the organization as well as record donation and participation levels.
